UK police receive Porsche patrol car

The vehicle will be used to help educate the public, particularly young drivers, about road safety

ATTLEBOROUGH, England — A police department’s new Porsche Cayman GT4 police vehicle is catching the eyes of young drivers.

The vehicle, donated to the Norfolk Constabulary by the Lind Trust, will serve not as a vehicle for everyday law enforcement operations but as a conversation starter about road-safety with young drivers, Jalopnik reported. It comes fully-loaded with police decals, interior blue lights, and even its own hashtag, #Porsche999.

For the past two years, the GT4 has been donated to the Constabulary to help combat fatal and serious crashes involving young drivers, the department said in a press release. In Norfolk, 61 young drivers have died in collisions and 504 have suffered serious injuries over the last five years.

“The GT4 will certainly attract a lot of attention – but that’s the whole idea,” Chief Constable Simon Bailey said in the press release. “We hope the car will act as a conversation starter, which gives us the opportunity to engage with people, but more importantly those hard-to-reach groups like young drivers, and offer practical advice as well as describing what can happen when things go wrong.”

The Porsche will complement existing initiatives including the police’s #Impact campaign and the Young Driver Education Presentation, which they present in local schools.
